  • Don't over-employ "logic"...just enjoy this one

    My dad called me tonight to tell me "A Piece of the Action" was airing on the station that carries oldies television. He let me know by quoting Bela Okmyx into the phone and then quickly hanging up. I dropped my super-important task to go flip on the TV and find it. One hour well spent.

    Twenty-some years later, I still chuckle at Fisbin, Spock's handle on the colloquial ("Check"), Scotty's non-plussed looks as he is threatened, and the bratty kid who gives the episode its title.

    This one is just plain fun. Overanalysis kills everything, ya know - Spock would agree!
